Tuesday, October 29, 2019 - 3:00PM - 4:00PM EST

Georgetown University National Center for Cultural Competence and the National Center on Advancing Person-Centered Thinking, Planning, and Practice, NCAPPS will be hosting a webinar, which is the is the second in a four-part series that explores cultural and linguistic competence as it relates to person-centered thinking, planning, and practice.

Cultural competence is widely recognized as essential to the delivery of high quality and effective services and supports by policy makers, health, mental health and social service professionals, educators, and researchers. There is a solid base of evidence that cultural competence improves access, utilization, outcomes, and satisfaction in health and human service delivery systems. While this evidence is compelling, many organizations have struggled to integrate cultural competence into their person-centered thinking, planning, and practice. This webinar will:
  1. Describe a framework for cultural competence and at the individual and organizations levels
  2.  Provide a “real life” example of an organization that values and practices cultural competence
  3. Highlight personal narratives of individuals who will share what culturally competent services mean to them
  4. Describe how cultural competence and person-centered thinking and practice are integrally linked
 NCAPPS webinars are open to the public, and are geared toward human services administrators, providers, and people who use long-term services and supports. All NCAPPS webinars will be recorded and archived at https://ncapps.acl.gov. You can find the archives and resources from the first in the series here.
